A Will Can Express Your Wishes
When it comes to estate planning, the best place to start is with a Will. This legal document clearly explains your wishes in a concise manner. It can be as long or as short as you wish. In a Will, you can appoint a Personal Representative to handle your affairs after you pass.
Additional important documents in preparing for the future are a Durable General Power of Attorney and an Advance Health Care Directive. The persons appointed by these documents play important roles. A Power of Attorney can act on your behalf in legal or financial matters if you are unable to do so for yourself. Similarly, an Advance Health Care Agent can make medical decisions should you become incapacitated.
After someone passes away, their estate may have to go through the probate process. This is when the courts examine the Will and decide whether or not it is valid. Debts are paid off and property is distributed to the rightful heirs. Estate administration can be tricky and confusing, especially when you are focusing on mourning the loss of a loved one. Our firm can help you from beginning to end. We will always communicate what we think is best and will listen to your concerns.
